Every autumn the Agisters organise a series of drifts when all the commonerís ponies are rounded up. The round-up is done on horseback at high speed. They are moved off the forest to a pound. They are checked over, wormed, the colts in particular and any old or sick ponies are removed from the forest and the dues for grazing on the forest are paid. Their tails are trimmed to signify that this has been paid.
A few shots from the Mill Lawn Drift last week end. I ran these through Lightroom and played about with the Phaded photo preset
